Enforcement Center Page

  • Dark
  • PDF

Use the Enforcement Center page to create, view, modify, duplicate, run and delete Enforcement Sets, and view the Enforcement Set tasks.

Each Enforcement Set executes a saved query called the trigger and then automatically performs the configured actions on the query results. The query could represent a security policy you want to enforce. You can also perform relevant Enforcement Actions on the results of queries run on the Adapter Fetch and Activity Log pages, thus enabling you to create actions on information generated by Axonius itself.

To open the Enforcement Center page, click the image.png icon on the left navigation panel.

The Enforcement Center page consists of the following main elements:

  1. Search bar
  2. Enforcement Sets table
  3. Total Results
  4. The Actions menu
  5. Create Enforcement Set

Enforcement Sets Table

The Enforcement Sets table displays a list of Enforcement Sets. Each Enforcement Set can be configured with one each of the following actions:

  • Main Action (required)
  • Success Action
  • Failure Action
  • Post Action

Each row in the Enforcement Sets table lists one Enforcement Set. To view all Enforcement Actions in the set, expand the set by clicking the down arrow to the left of the Action icons.


The Enforcement Sets table includes the following fields:

  • Actions - The icons indicate the type of actions configured in the Enforcement Set.
  • Enforcement Name – The Enforcement Set name.
  • Query Name – the selected saved query for the Enforcement Set trigger.
  • Scheduling Type - The trigger schedule type.
  • Total Runs – The total number of times the Enforcement Set was run.
  • Last Run – The date/time the Enforcement Set was last run.
  • Last Run Status - Whether the last run of the Enforcement Set completed, failed, or partially completed.
  • Last Updated – The date/time the Enforcement Set was last edited.
  • Updated by - The name of the last user who updated the Enforcement Set.
    • The user name is displayed with a prefix:
      • Internal - A user who was defined internally in Axonius by one of the system admins.
      • SAML or LDAP - A user who logged in using the LDAP or SAML based login options.
    • If the user no longer exists in the system, the displayed user name is displayed with a “(deleted)” suffix.
    • Hover over the field to display the user first and last name in addition to the user name, if this exists.

You can filter the Enforcement Sets list by selecting from the following lists:

  • Search Enforcement Sets - Search on all text fields: Name, Main Action and Trigger Query Name.
  • Query - Select the trigger query.
  • Asset Type - Filters by the type of asset to which the Enforcement Action applies.
  • Scheduling Type - Filters by the type of schedule configured.
  • Category - Filters by the Enforcement Action catagory.
  • From/To date selection - Filters by the date the Enforcement Action was run.

Total Results

The total number of Enforcement Sets found for the search criteria are displayed on the top left side of the Enforcement Sets table. If no filtering is done, the total results represent the total number of Enforcement Sets defined.

Actions Menu

The Actions menu at the top right of the Enforcement Center table opens the Actions menu for selected Enforcement Sets, to 'Duplicate', 'Delete' or 'Run' Enforcement Sets.
